Started walking at first light about 4.30 am. Nearly lost an eye on a branch walking through the woods. Rained constantly for the whole time walking, paths were more like streams and my waterproofs weren't as waterproof as they should have been. In clag for the whole walk. Decided against continuing to Stuc a Croin. That's the second time out I've not got Stuc a Croin after bad weather on Ben Vorlich. (That red balloon is bugging me even more now when I look at my Munro map.)
But that's my first Corbett bagged and despite the weather and my skewered eye, I still enjoyed it. Need a plan C for Stuc a Croin.
